Hey Tom, The rear panel should bolt on and off. I noticed that you have the short one. If you get the longer one you might not have to cut a slot for the sprocket. On mine it did not make any noticeable difference in appearance but made a lot of room for the sprocket.

Check this out. May be it will help.

I remember you pointing that out a while back to someone else.....I wish I knew what years and model the longer came off of to help me find one. Any clue what year/vintage that your extended panel is off of?

UPS MAN just dropped off my rear wheels and hubs from ARC!!!!! Just started to mount the rear tires onto the new wheels.... :mad: Man these are a tight fit to get on!!!

I think I had both my front wheels mounted with tubes in about 15 minutes tops....I've already spent 20 minutes just trying to get half the wheel inside the tire and still have not got it! :willynilly:

Well...got the tires mounted on their wheels!!! I placed them on the axle to see what my preliminary frame height is at and with tires inflated to 8 psi I'm measuring 4.250" with my cassettes set at mid-point.

Here is a view with the fender placed on.


Here is a full side view with my wanna be front axle



Here is my low cost front axle

Well, the rules do state "one piece" and " not aluminum"...so I "guess" that qualifies..... :omg:

Yes but the question is ..wood it hold up?

I think you are barkn'  up the wrong tree with that axle.

I'm knot going to be the one to test it.

You might want to spruce it up a bit.

The race season is barely over and I'm already board, Oh how I Pine for the race season to start again..

George,
Is this what you mean when you say you need to flip the casset?



Do you mean just move the bolt , or flip the entire casset in it's holder and leave the bolt where it's at?

Redrill the holes either in the back of the casstte or in the holder but flip the entire casstte not the holder so the bolt is on top

Yep, where your arrows end is the top. All I did was rotate the entire cassette assembly 180* from the position in the photo. Drilled new holes thru welded on holder and thats it!
